Grace City Church is led by a team of elders whose primary responsibility is to oversee and care for the church through the ministry of the Word and prayer.  Recently, Grace City’s members voted for the church’s inaugural elders.  As part of the elders’ development and training they will undergo two years of theological study while simultaneously serving Grace City as elders.  For more on eldership please refer to part 7 of our Biblically Healthy Church series.
